    One of my jackets is the Airglide. Good jacket--good liner. I chose Black but would pick a lighter color for Arizona next time.

    +1 on the Airglide. I'm in Nashville and am glad I went with Silver.

    Airglide 2

    I have the Airglide 2 in silver/gray. Excellent jacket. Vents well in the heat and the quilted waterproof liner works and is surprisingly warm for cool rides.

    My wife tells me the reflective piping lights up well at night.

    Also washes very well.

    Have the matching pants. Other than being bulkier than I prefer, work as well as the jacket.

    Wore them both on a 5,000 mile trip to and from the Gillette, Wyoming rally and they handled all the weather conditions I encountered in the USA and Canada.

    Great Jacket in Hi Viz. I'm certain it does not compare to a Motoport if you go down though...

    Have both - intake in Red and Olympia is Hi Viz

    Usually wear the Olympia on sunny days for max effect

    Either one is a good jacket - cant really make a bad choice
